Review Date: Apr 13, 2017 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Very sharp, low flare and aberrations, and very good bokeh.
Cons:
Slow and inconsistent AF, Weight.

Im a wedding photographer and I needed a lens with a wide angle and a good bokeh too. I think this lens is almost perfect.

Very nice bokeh at 1.4, very sharp when adquire focus acurate. Cons AF is a bit slow and inconsistent, weight is a bit heavy but not importat. Vigneting is important at 1.4 but is not very important for me.

A very good lens for weddings Wink

Pros: nice bokeh
Cons:
slow focus

I acquired this lens to pay for a broad angle in low light. The very first few pictures were less in focus, but it settled in nicely after that and has been taking charming photos. Much more affordable than its competitors. I would love to try the 50mm Art lens!

Pros: Sharp, low aberrations, tolerable vignetting, close focus ability. Slow but precise AF. Low flare.
Cons:
Slightly warmish colors. Weight and size. AF may need fine-tuning. MF handling not that nice.

A nearly faultless lens. It delivers very clean images, even wide open. Bokeh is rather good, except on close-ups (about 1:5 ratio is the limit).

You can get constrasty shots even wide-open and against the light. Wide open here means less DOF, period. On a 16MP camera center sharpness will be more than sufficient.

LoCA is there but unconspicuous (no "neon lighting"-style fringes), which for me is essential. For reference, the Nikkor 35/1.4 G was not acceptable for my taste.

Before you make your own opinion, make sure that the AF is properly calibrated. If not possible, use MF. MF is by the way not that nice: short throw, some dry friction feel, but it works OK.

note: if you do not need AF, the Samyang 24/1.4 is interesting to consider. It performs less well but IQ is still very good, and it is cheaper (same price/quality ratio, I'd say)
